The plane fell out of the sky shortly after takeoff. It crashed in a forest near the village of Alekseevka (40 miles from Vladivostok). The crew ejected, but their condition is not yet known. No casualties have been reported.

The press service of the Eastern Military District confirmed the fighter plane crash. “The flight was carried out without ammunition. The plane fell in a deserted place, there was no damage on the ground. According to preliminary information, the cause of the accident could have been a technical malfunction,” they said.
